This week the cherry blossoms are in bloom at our bucolic manor. In a few days, their petals will drift down and coat the drive like snow (that doesn't need to be shoveled).
When I see them, I am always reminded of the scene from "The Last Samurai" where they say you could spend a lifetime looking for the perfect cherry blossom and it would not be wasted. I always look at each blossom - none of them are perfect by themselves, but together - perfection.
My friend planted this tree, but she never gets to see it in bloom. So even though it got a little damaged by the October snow this winter, enjoy the blossoms, L-!
